As I sit in the coffee shop at home in my own suburb I am pondering how things on the communication front have changed in the years that I have been frequenting this excellent little shop.
How proud I was when I got a mobile phone so I could ring home while having coffee to get the kids to take the washing off the line. I could liase over my mobile to meet friends after school to talk. Now?
I am writing on my blog using the free wifi on my iTouch (though it could have been my eePC) after checking my email and twitter. Is this relaxing? Funny thing is that it is for me, but it is clearly not the chosen way for most people to relax! No one else here is on ‘a device’!
What does this mean? Is my behaviour part of a new wave or am I an abberation amongst my peers?
